Thornton School of Music, University of Southern California

"Richard’s ability to share his knowledge … is a gift to all music creators writing for the screen. "The Emerging Film Composer" is the standard to which all books on the subject are compared, now his video tutorials set the same standard."

Marvin Dolgay — President, Screen Composer's Guild of Canada

"Richard brings a new and deeper level of understanding to the composer/director relationship. The director watching this series will learn a much more effective way of communicating with the composer, making for a vastly superior score."

Charles Wilkinson, Director
Oil Sands Karaoke, Peace Out, Crash, Out Of Nowhere, The Highlander

"I was struck by how substantive the information is.  What an opportunity to learn real skills from someone who’s clearly an expert in the field. Should be required viewing for those serious about composing music for films or TV."

Zach Horowitz — Chairman & CEO, Universal Music Publishing Group (UMPG)

"Watching Richard's informal but information-packed videos spells it all out for the emerging film composer. You must watch these wonderful lessons presented by a master craftsman."

Michael Isaacson — Composer, conductor, and orchestrator for Television and Film

"Art is a form of self expression.
The last thing a director needs is some
